Humane Society – the purrrfect field trip
I know! I know!
Dogs and cats are not wild animals! And a building field trip is not the same as a wild – outdoor field trip! But this tour of the Humane Society was very educational, fun, inspiring, and… well… just plain cute and cuddly!!
She also held a discussion about service animals like dogs and pigs.
All these adorable dogs… ❤️🐶❤️
Andre couldn’t find his dog… because she had been adopted that morning!!
So many cute cats! ❤️🐱❤️
Adoption fees are waived every Thursday for cats 6 months and older!!
You only pay for a rabies tag (I think just $10)
The kids got to see inside the medical examination rooms while being taught about the importance of vaccinations and check-ups!
I didn’t take pictures of the furry patients to protect their privacy (I didn’t want to violate any HIPPA laws!!)
Below is a picture of the patient recovery rooms…
This is one of the ways the Humane Society uses donated towels and blankets!
There are many animals that need homes, not just dogs and cats!
Eli was especially happy to see this giant stuffed German Shepard!
I adored this amazing statue of a horse (paper mache?)
The humane society even helps rescue horses, goats, and other farm animals that are mistreated! They sat at the Longmeadow Rescue Ranch… Their Spring Fling Open House is on Sunday April 16 11 am – 3 pm http://longmeadowrescueranch.org/
All animals up for adoption are showcased on the Humane Society Website!http://www.hsmo.org/
I recommend the Humane Society as a field trip and I thank Simone’s homeschool girl scout troop for arranging this outing and allowing her brothers and mom to participate 🙂
